Collings Foundation's TP-51C climbing out at Boeing Field. Canon 5D MkII w/300mm lens. Incredible sound from that Packard Merlin at this stage of flight w/o too much boost. Pure music to the ears.

Great photo! Still a great war bird... even if it is a trainer.

With Dual controls - only one of its kind. Bravo for the Collings Foundation!!

Beautiful plane. I saw it July 4 2016 in Seattle. Also had a chance to ride in the 909 B-17 by Collings Foundation.


Loved every minute of it!

The sound of that Merlin is even better from the back seat especially when the pilot turns onto the runway and says "This is a Mustang - giddy-up!"
